Ridiculousness, contradiction, films, oriental culture and their healthy obsession with extraterrestrial life forms and paranormal phenomena baptized the group. With just one demo in which they registered a barely planned rather improvisational set, and a two-song single, it took them a while to release something more serious. When they finally did it, in 2005, it was with 2 EPs, composed at different times but recorded consecutively, Electro Roberto and Karaoke. These albums now discovered a voice and thick keyboard layers, though they also had the instrumental twist of the beginning of the band. They also continued with the idea of noise orchestration and lo-fi philosophy, and after people's attempts to tag and categorize their music, they defined themselves as "Yoghurt-Rock" (and all the possible nonsense variations).
Once they were released, Sebastián Ayala was recruited as a multi-instrumentalist. When the time of playing live came, with these records released and new songs composed, and with the help of a few friends as guest musicians, the trio became a quintet, and sometimes even a six piece. But in late 2005, after the spiritual quest of becoming a lion tamer, Rodrigo left the band, playing ocasionally live as a guest. In 2007 Cristian Cabrera, who once was a guest musician at the beginning of the band, was officially (re) incorporated to accomplish the duty the bass player, and some other instrument, once in a while. What would Woodie Alien do on stage is a surprise, whether they're gonna give us a bunch of songs in half an hour or half an hour in one song. The important thing is that they're among us, and they observe us. It has been said that they've ceased activities on 2011, but they've been releasing new old material on their Bandcamp, and they'll probably keep on doing it.
